This is the first post about Biographies. I want to write some people who are greatly distributed in the computing, software industry.

The first person i want to talk about is Bill Joy.

Obviously Bill Joy has been well-known computer software engineer or businessman. Bill Joy was born in Detroit, and received a BSEE in electrical engineering from University of Michigan in 1975. He then moved to California and received a M.S. in Electrical Engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley. When I come to this, I found that there are so many people who distributed great achievements are mostly graduated from the University of California, Berkeley.

When he graduated, while at Berkley he played a central role in the development of Berkeley Unix. In the period of it, he created a Vi editor. In 1983 he founded Sun Microsystems, which is the one of the leading software companies in the US. In the company, he served as CEO and chief researcher for Sun until 2003. There is another contribution when he worked in the Sun Microsystems, which is the development of Java programming language. Bill Joy was not directly developing Java. But he inspired Gosling to develop it. James Gosling worked in Sun but left later years.
